In my book children are a huge part of the story. They serve to move the plot forward, present obstacles to both the hero and supporting characters. Children represent innocence in many societies, and I’ve definitely made it that way in the world I’ve created. They are precious because they represent infinite potential and advancement in evolution, as a result, they’re the best of mothers and fathers. And my hero believes this and loves his children to death.
I was taking a break from my mundane day job, walking down Market St. and enjoying the sun. Suddenly, a streetwalker accosted me—get your mind outtah the guttah. She asked me if I wanted a child.
“Whoa lady," I said.
“What I’m talkin’ about is sponsoring a child,” she said.
She proceeded to tell me about www.children.org, how it’s a non-profit organization, most of the money goes to the children, and I can pick where my money goes. After an hour wrenching my arm, she was quite strong, I agreed.
Check out the child I’m sponsoring below, the letter she wrote me, go to my personal link, and if you feel like giving, then give. If not, then no plobrem
There’s a saying: It’s better to give than to receive.
It is better to give, you may say.
Let’s take a simple concept of giving money. To give money you must have money. To have money you must receive it. If I wanted to give twenty bucks, I have to have twenty bucks. However, if I only had ten bucks, then I can only give ten bucks.
The idea of giving is that you’ll receive. We live in a world of dualities. The Ying and Yang illustrates this perfectly. You can't have a front without a back, an up without a down, the good without the bad, giving without receiving, etc. But beware. Don’t give because you want to receive. Give because you want to. It will return to you in ways you've never imagined.
